This is done in such a manner that the government has no precedent for acting under existing-Ia\vs. This is all part of the drive of radical labor elements to dominate this country--its industries, its government, its people. It has become almost a _ commonplace for labor leaders, drunk with power jto defy the highest government officials, including the President of the United States.

Ohio, a | well known muralist and illustrator, is the artist of this year's seal. Out of his own experience he con ceived the theme of the lighthouse as the symbol ot the tuberculosis work. For it was soon after he had begun to gain recognition that he discovered he had tuberculosis. He had just been asked to join an art studio in New York and was preparing to move there from Ohio. Mr. Dohauos said that the temptation was great to work on and hope that he would regain his health But the educatinal campaign o£ the tuberculosis association had taught him about the disease he had to fight. So he immediately .w'.'.e n t to a sanatorium a n d underwent treatment a n d complete rest. Three years af ter his return to Xew York Mr. Dohanos was cho sen by the Treasury Art Project in Washington to do paintings in the Virgin Islands for federal buildings. Since then he has completed two mural projects--one for the Elkins. W, Pick Axe CHRISTMAS SEALS Protect Your Home from Tuberculosis Ya..

He is now working on another mural which will be placed in the Charlotee Ania- lie Post Office in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. LABOR USES GUERILLA TACTICS RETARDING DEFENSE PRODUCTION U NIONS in this country are using what can be described only as "guerilla tactics" to block and delay defense production. That is the astonishing fact produced in an article in Business Week describing what has been going on in Gary, Indiana, one of the nation's major steel centers. Gavy steel plants are working at record levels. , Yet steel workers are idle. Steel men, says Business Week, "call it 'union unemployment.'"" The steel companies, with their vast payrolls, are never sure how many men will be at work on a given day. If, for instance) half a dozen cranemen fail to come on the job, a thousand men in other departments must be sent home because steel cannot be moved. Not long ago. the failure of key workers to report was responsibile for a loss of steel pro- Fmncis Saigh of Iron River was placed on the first string- all-conference team of the Menominee Range at the fullback position. He was one of the players against whom the Speed Boys played in the first game of the season. Saigh is a nice player, being good in the passing, punting and ball canyrng departments. Another player against whom the local boys saw action and who is on the Jirst string, is Geno Marana, of Stambaugh He_was placed in the halfback spot. Emil Shu- VM ot Iron River was picked as a guard. Saigfc was the biggest ground gainer on the Menominee Range the past season. · Deer hunting and bowling don't mix in this part of the UJ». When the deer season rolls around, as the Monday night league and the Wednesday night Commercial League were too busy chasing the whitetail to bowl this week. The bowling scores of these two leagues will not appear in the scores being published this week. Only the scores of the "deer hunters' widows" will appear that is, the Tuesday, Thursday and Friday leagues Notice where the Conservation Department will halt cars for both deer and Christmas trees from now until the end of the month when the deer season comes to a close. For the life of us, we can't picture anyone being foolish enough to chop a Christmas tree at this time of the vear. With more than a month remaining before "Santa makes his annual tnp. that Christmas tree will be as bare ot needles as the average pocketbook come Christmas morning. Even when a tree is chopped a day or two before Christmas, it sheds a large portion of its needles 5-efore being taken down after the first of the year if kept in the warm living rooms A land-owners permit is needed to cut a tree off property this year, as it has been the law for the past several years. We know some fellows who earnestly wait for deer season each year, then there are those who don't give a hang whether there's a deer in the woods or not, preferring to do their drinking at home or in a licensed establishment. Thanksgiving has come and gone, those who have enjoyed their fill on this day of feasts, have much to be thankful for. at least they've been well te *- Thanksgiving will be changed to its original place at the last Thursday in November instead of a week earlier The desired effect of stimulating trade by allowing an .extra week in which to think about Christmas did not materialize as most people did think about Christmas, but did not · act, most of them not doing their last minute shopping early enough to please the administration. Snow came Thanksgiving day which was a weclome sight to deer hunters who are out in the woods. Weather too warm to keep a dead buck in the woods is not relished by hunters, who also like to see fresh tracks in the woods and also to trail a wounded deer by his tracks and blood spots in the snow.
